While I've been a little down on King's X since after their self-titled album, they still have some good stuff.
And while I've never seen them live, I've heard good things about Satriani live from those who've seen him. And Dream Theater should be a lot of fun, too. I love some of the live stuff they did on "A Change of Season," even if it was all cover songs.
So, while I am a long-time rock musician (on and off for over ten years now, and I'm 28), sounds like you got great seats to a fun show. Enjoy!

Yeah, but the thing is, who killed off hair metal? Nirvana had a more dramatic impact than AiC did, or at least will ever get credit. AiC was certainly one of the more interesting bands to come out of those four, if not the most.
